Established in 1999, Nunavut (“Our Land” in Inuktitut) is Canada’s newest territory. The Canadian Heraldic Authority and Inuit artist Andrew Qappik, developed this Coat of arms in close collaboration with the elders and leaders of Nunavut. The result is a remarkable fusion of Inuit symbolism and European heraldic tradition.
